Jersey Girls

A sure sign of summer is the appearance of a new Stephanie Plum mystery by New Jersey native Janet Evanovich. In Sizzling Sixteen -set in Trenton as always– our favorite bounty hunter Stephanie along with her sidekicks get caught up in more bounty hunting escapades with the usual hilarious results.
Mystery writer Donna Leon (also New Jersey born) the creator of the critically acclaimed Commissario Brunetti series set in Venice –where the author now resides–latest offering A Question of Belief has our intrepid detective dealing with another murder case complicated by political corruption and human failings. Fans love Brunetti because he manages to remain humane and moral despite the depravity he encounters. Brunettii’s wonderful family and the vivid descriptions of the Venice all the characters love provide balance.
Read Evanovich to laugh. Read Donna Leon to think.
